FSMA 204

Leveraging GDST (Standard for Global Seafood Traceability), Agritrack’s platform secures seafood traceability details for FSMA 204 and delivers the capacity towards seamless data exchange with third parties.

What is FSMA 204?

FSMA 204 requires additional recordkeeping traceability requirements on designated foods to safeguard public health. It is a rule that monitors the entire food supply chain for food produced and designated for US consumption , mandates Traceability Lot Codes from harvest to table and aligns with industry best practices.

What about the dead line?

Starting from January 20, 2026, FDA will require these additional recordkeeping requirements for all designated seafood (Food Traceability List) to protect public health. Agritrack is here to help! Please contact us to find out if your seafood is in the FDA designated list.

FSMA, or the Food Safety Modernization Act, is crucial for ensuring the safety and integrity of the food supply chain. It focuses on prevention, transparency, and accountability in food production processes, ultimately safeguarding public health.

The FDA’s Food Traceability List (FTL) includes specific categories of seafood, such as finfish (e.g., tuna, cod, salmon), crustaceans (e.g., shrimp, crab, lobster), and mollusks (e.g., oysters, clams, mussels). These categories are subject to enhanced traceability requirements under FSMA to better protect consumers from foodborne illnesses and facilitate rapid response to food safety issues.

FSMA benefits consumers by promoting food safety through preventive measures, such as preventive controls and enhanced traceability. By ensuring that food producers prioritize safety and transparency, FSMA helps consumers make informed choices about the food they eat, reducing the risk of foodborne illnesses and enhancing overall confidence in the food supply.

Some key requirements of FSMA for seafood producers include establishing and maintaining records to track the source and movement of food products.

Seafood producers can ensure compliance with FSMA by implementing food safety management systems, conducting regular risk assessments and preventive controls, maintaining accurate records of food production and distribution, and staying informed about updates to FSMA regulations and guidelines.
